NEW YORK (AP) — ABC will air “Black Panther” commercial-free Sunday as a prime-time tribute to Chadwick Boseman. The film will be followed by an ABC News Special, “Chadwick Boseman: A Tribute for a King.” Disney said the special “will celebrate Boseman’s storied life, legacy and career” and “shine a light on the medical condition he privately battled.” Boseman died Friday after a four-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43. The film will be broadcast at 8 p.m. EDT, with the special beginning at 10:20 p.m. EDT.
